Re: Fortnite: Battle Royale

Don’t know about this game, but my brother said PUBG is the most intense game he’s ever played, despite the limited graphics and gameplay. It has a way of forcing you to be strategic and is full of surprises. Yeah, I think a big part of the intensity is that you only have 1 life, against 99 other p...

Re: 2018/1/27: Nintendo Switch: I Am Setsuna (Japan)

I think it's been more common for the VGC to review multiple versions of games for older systems, since the differences were more notable. He hasn't seemed to do it as often with newer systems, since the versions generally play the same. I assume another factor is the time investment.. it's quicker ...

Re: New TV?

Ok. At certain sizes, the benefits of 4K is negligible or nonexistent. It depends on how close you sit to the TV too. (There are diagrams online that give this info.) At 40", you're probably fine going with a 1080p TV, and focusing on the other features. It'll save you money too. Again, I've al...

Re: A good video to watch on the PS2 about it graphics and why it is more CRT focused/has more jaggies then rivals.

I like the nostalgia debate here... We once had a topic on these forums about the "objective" best console ever made. It's a tough question, but the winning vote-getter was the PS2--and that was despite not including backward compatibility. I voted that way as well, since I think the PS2 h...

Re: New TV?

First step is deciding which size you want. This past November, I bought a brand new TV for the first time ever . Before that, I always saved money by getting hand-me-downs or buying used on Craigslist. I had a 37" Sharp 720p TV in the living room for years, and upgraded to a 55" Samsung 4...

Re: Physical Release Thread

Simple the critic liks the Nintendo Switch more end of story, can not blame him on that,it puts the PS4 and Xbox One shame in terms of pure fun! I like the enthusiasm, Sonicx9.. unrivaled around here. I can’t see any argument for discs being more collectible, other than just a personal preference. ...

Re: Physical Release Thread

Is it just me, or is the Switch becoming the system of choice for those who prefer physical media? It's just you Critic. I think it just feels that way because the Switch is a new system, so there is more optimistic buzz around it right now. But I agree with ptdebate. Also, like with every Nintendo...

Re: Fortnite: Battle Royale

I'm ok with the storm, but I can see what you mean. As we know, something has to happen to force players to reduce the map size, in order to keep the action flowing once the number of players shrinks down. (Within 5 minutes, there's only like 30 or so people left, thanks to all the idiots playing to...

Re: Worst 50 Games of All Time!

- Like GTS, I was happy to see that E.T. didn't make the list. I caught that as well and it made me respect the list a lot more, since it was coming from your genuine experiences playing thousands of games, rather than catering to any public perception of worst games. E.T. is a bad game, but I don't...

Re: Fortnite: Battle Royale

Yeah, my survival strategy is good, but my combat strategy is terrible in this game. But it's interesting to watch how stupid other gamers are... especially with how they act at the very beginning of the game... tells you a lot about human nature. For anyone reading who hasn't played this game, the ...
